    1 Intro:
    Wizardry V, Heart of the Maelstrom is a game for the Super Nintendo
    Entertainment System. It was released in 1993 and is based on a PC game
    of the same name. This game starts you in a maze called "The Maelstrom"
    This maze was created by an evil force referred to as "Sorn". I have
    been playing this game off and on for years and i have finally beaten
    it. All names and other copyrighted words are the property of their

    2 Creating a Party:
    
    Creating a party is the most crucial step to playing the game. Beginners
    should use the following setup:
    1.Fighter(Fighter/Lord/Samurai/Ninja)
    2.Fighter(Fighter/Lord/Samurai/Ninja)
    3.Fighter(Fighter/Lord/Samurai/Ninja)
    4.Thief (Thief/Ninja)
    5.Magic User (Cleric/Lord)
    6.Magic User (Wizard)
    -My party consists of 1 ninja, 2 samurai, 2 lord, 1wizard.
    
    Notes on character order:
    
    -First, you should arrange it so that all your characters can attack. An
    easy way to do this is to give 3 of your characters long-range weapons
    and put these 3 in the back.
    -Characters with heavy armor should be placed before those with light
    armor.
    
    
    3. Walkthrough
    
    Quest 1: The Orb and The Statue
    The maze is long and difficult to memorize. A map is needed to navigate
    the convoluted passageways. There is a magic spell that has the same
    effect, but magic is best used for other purposes. Magic points are
    scarce in this game. The map is an item called the Solemn Statue. To get
    it, you first have to have the orb of Llygamyn. What you need to do is
    advance your character's levels by fighting the various monsters in the
    maze. Once one of your characters learns the Mage spell Dumnapic, use
    this spell to find your current location. It is now time to get the orb.
    The orb is located at the coordinates(E18,N9) Get Orb, save your game,
    and go back to town to rest up and see if anyone gained any more levels.
    Now it is time to get the Statue. There are two things that you need to
    get the statue: the orb, and 37500 dollars. The Statue can be found at
    (E8, N24)
    You must purchase it from G'bli Gedook. He has many wise words for you
    as well. If he does not wish to speak, give all your gold to one party
    member, save the game, quit the party, and restart just the member with
    all the gold. Have him go in alone. It is never a good idea to fight
    G'bli Gedook or steal from him. He has spells that can kill off your
    party very easily. Buy the statue for 25000 dollars, then go to Boltac's
    Trading post and identify it for 12500 dollars. If you're wondering how
    to get the gold to do this, go
    to the vampire statue at (E20, N27) and repeatedly give the wrong answer
    to fight the bats. These are the best sourse of experience on the level.
    By the way, the correct answer is "Vampire." The correct answer reveals
    a door. In this area, you can meet Ironnose the Dwarf. I met him at
    (E16, N28). you need to buy a key from him for $300. Charming him works
    well. BEWARE! there is an enemy in this area(E15, N23) known as a
    "living rock" He packs quite a punch. If you do beat him, he leaves a
    mace. After raising your level high enough that you have 6 uses of
    Dumnapic, its time to proceed to the second floor of the maze. The
    creatures there should increase your fortune quite a bit. (Make sure you
    explore the area behind the vampire statue first.) The next section is
    on getting to the second floor of the maze.
    
    Quest 2:
    The Purse, the Motor Room, The Hurkle Beast, and Level 2
    Before you take up this challenge, go back upstairs to the Adventurer's
    inn and see if you gained any levels. Then save the game at the foot of
    the stairs. First of all, you need the purse it is at (E4, N4) you have
    to search the corpse and fight some undead monsters to get it. To get to
    the purse, you must turn off the motor. To do this, you need the Brass
    Key from Ironnose. The motor is located at (E6, N4). Use the key to get
    in and select the actions in this order to de-actiavte the machine
    D,B,C,A. Collect the Bag of Tokens by defeating the monsters. The bag in
    in the chest that they leave behind.
    The Token Booth is located at (E12, N4). It lowers you to part pf level
    two. This sealed area contains a teleporter at (E7, S4) that can take
    you to levels 2,3,4,or 5. The corner (W3, S14) has a chest containing
    the bottle of soda. Somewhere in the area is the Hurkle Beast. He has
    about 38 hit points and his attacks cause poison and paralysis.
    He doesn't leave an item. Hang around this area and fight monsters to
    your heart's content. If you want to explore more of level 2, there is a
    rope leading into another sealed room at(E9. N5). The pit located in the
    small room next to (E11, N1) leads to the same room. This is damaging,
    though, so its better to take the rope. This small room has pits at
    (W17,S1) and (W16,S6) that damage you. The rope to get back up is
    located at (W5, N2).
    
    Quest 3:
    The Legendary Den of Theives:
    The idea of this quest is to build your levels higher. First, go to the
    Inn and check your levels. Its also a good idea to buy weapons and
    armor. Make sure you got the map before coming here. To get to the den,
    go to the shimmering portal on the first floor (E15, N9). You should see
    lots of black. Use the map to find your way to the door. This is the
    door(E10,S1) to the den of theives. Inside you will find strong enemies
    and several bands of roving theives led by NPC's. Busted Brian, Rick the
    Pick, and Le Dombo can all be found here. Make sure you charm them and
    get their advice sometime during the game. Always save at the room with
    the "Den of Theives" sign so you can restart there in case the theives
    steal one of your good items. Their hints cost $250 each. Avoid fighting
    the Blackblades, Armor Eaters and Assasins if possible.
    
    Quest 4:
    Level Three, The Mad Stomper
    This is where the enemies begin to get hard. Level threeconsists of
    three parts. The first part is the hallway surrounding the maze part.
    The maze part is the second part.
    The third part is the top area. Until you get the Litofeit spell stick
    to the hallway area.
    Aviod the gastrap at (E21,S23).
    Its a good idea to try fighting the enemies in lovel 5 to speed this
    process. Don't enter Manfretti's yet, i believe you cannot leave for
    awhile if you do so.

    try to steal from him either. When angered, he calls acolytes and casts
    death spells. He is not easily charmed. Buy the Statue from him.

    Swimming is an important skill in this game. Items and gold can be found
    in pools, as well as monsters and stat alterations. A Character's swim
    rating is show in the status screen. This number is the number of levels
    they can swim without drowning. To raise this level, save the game and
    make the character dive a level deeper than the rating. If your
    character drowns, reset the game, otherwise, save and continue. There is
    an item that allows characters to swim as deep as they wish without fear
    of drowning. This item is called the rubber duck. You can buy it from
    the Mad Stomper on level 3. Once you equip it on a character, he/she
